Natural gas is the only indigenous commercial energy resource in Bangladesh. Natural gas currently accounts for 72% of the commercial needs. Most of the natural gas is used in generation of electricity and production of urea fertilizer, with significant uses in industrial, commercial and domestic purpose as well as fuel for CNG operated vehicles. Gas demand is increasing sharply keeping pace with the economic development and diversified use of gas. In Bangladesh gas reserve is not increasing.
Presently there is gas shortage in Bangladesh resulting less power generation, low gas pressure and no new gas connection in industrial, captive and CNG sector impeded in whole gas pipeline network areas.
